"I was wondering if you had a black tea recipe...." Amos Herrera
I guess it is only natural that I receive a request for Black Tea Wine after posting one for Green Tea & Ginger. This recipe differs from many tea wine recipes in that it contains grape concentrate for body. Either white or red grape concentrate can be used, depending on the color of wine you want.
Bring water to a boil and pour over the tea and sugar, stir well, and infuse until cool. Strain into primary, add grape concentrate, acid, nutrient and yeast. Cover and ferment until s.g. drops below 1.020. Transfer to secondary, fit airlock and ferment to dryness. Rack when wine is clear and completely dry, top up and refit airlock. Rack again after 45 days, stabilize, refit airlock, and set aside for 3-4 weeks. Sweeten to taste if desired and bottle. [Author's own recipe]
My thanks to Amos Herrera for requesting this recipe.
